Free wifi with great bandwidth and instant connection, plus generous in-room desk .... There's no... More

As a business traveller the WIFI and use opf offices gives you a great base and a professional place to meet business colleagues. The rooms are first class and you can... More

After staying at the RACV for business and pleasure over a number of years, I thought I ought to share this Melbourne "secret" with others. Located perfectly for business in the CBD, it is also a leisurely 15 minute stroll of Flinders St Station, Crown Casino, and downtown shopping. Although mid-priced, the size of the rooms (with walk in wardrobe,... More

We stayed here at Xmas. It was lovely, but at times I was definitely on the younger side of the guests! I think they need to work out how to market to people in their 30's bc it is a fab place, but not that happening!! Rooms were fabulous, pool clean, staff a pleasure & food and service almost entirely... More

We are members of the RAC in Sydney & really enjoy staying at the RACV in Melbourne. It is in a great location, the rooms are spacious, well appointed & very clean & well serviced. The restaurant downstairs is very convenient & good especially for breakfast. Our only negative experience with otherwise excellent staff was an amazingly rude staff member... More

Member of this city club for 23 years. Excellent facility , accommodation tops in a central location in the heart of the major shopping centre.Plenty of places to eat within the RACV- my pick is the 'Conservatory"-wide selection of food at realistic prices.Enjoyable experience if you want a 'place away from home' for a few nights R&R.

The RACV club offers large airy rooms all with opening windows, valet parking and probably the best Buffett breakfast in town. Quiet , comfortable and centrally located. The pool , sauna, steam room and spa are clean and well maintained as is the adjoining gym. The are both supported by large change rooms and unobtrusive staff.

I have stayed here a few times over the past couple of years, sometimes with my wife and daughter, sometimes when I have a late meeting or one early the next day. The club offers consistency of service with good rooms at a great price! The rooms themselves are large and well furnished. The bathrooms are really good, usually with... More
